The Board of Osage County Commissioners met with AT&T several weeks ago about how the company had been breaking permit violations and creating road damage across the county. After not hearing from AT&T since that last meeting, District Two Commissioner Kevin Pasley felt it was important to bring that up with his fellow commissioners.
Pasley says it is important to hold these utility companies responsible because County Emergency Manager Jerry Roberts has seen utilities going through unsafe places such as drains and pipes. This also deteriorates roads and causes extra expenses.
District One Commissioner Randall Jones disagreed with AT&T's stance at the meeting they attended more than a month ago.
The Commissioners will continue reaching out to AT&T.
